The Tournament

The MGA Open will be a 36 hole competition. For two days this August, 80 golfers will pursue the inaugural MGA Open where there will be a Gross & Nett Champion. Day 1 will involve a shotgun start and Day 2 will be arranged according to rank. Last place will be going off first and leaders going out last. Due to difficulty of the slope rating of Forest Pines the MGA Open has been restricted to a maximum handicap of 24.

Meander through majestic pines

The stunning championship layout at Forest Pines was opened in 1996 and has rapidly become one of the must play courses in the UK. The fairways twist and turn their way through majestic pines and then into open heathland and despite its tender years, Forest Pines is reminiscent of a more established championship course. Split into three 9 hole loops, the Pines, the Beeches and the Forest, it plays at 6,882 yards in its longest combination. Designed by John Morgan and constructed to exceptionally high standards, it was voted the best new course in England by Golf World magazine and Today's Golfer named rewarded the resort with the title of 'Best Golf Course in the East of England in 2018'

149 Slope RATING

Every golfer enjoys and relishes a challenge…and that is exactly what you’ll get when you tee it at Forest Pines. will arguably be the most challenging layouts you’re ever likely to face so are you prepared to pit your wits and skills against the toughest course around?


Favourably compared to the likes of Woburn and Wentworth, Forest Pines might only be 20 years old but thanks to its glorious setting in mature woodland you'd never know. The Forest and Pines combination is probably the most challenging. All 27 hole are always in immaculate condition and a golf break at Forest Pines Golf Club will certainly not disappoint.


Inspired by British heathland design, the golf course has a great variety of challenges and hazards to push your skills to the limit, be careful and you don’t get caught out.

immaculate greens

The greens are immaculate and the course is stunning thanks to the fairways, lined with the familiar pine and eucalyptus trees. Carya Golf Course is extremely hazardous with many fierce bunkers and tight fairways, forgiving to those who play with a strategy.
